The Motorola Charm is a compact Android slab with a keyboard up front, instead of hidden away beneath. It's a unique form for Android with some powerful ideas inside. Will the Charm cast its spell on quick messaging and BlackBerry fans alike?
The good news is that the eye-catching Honor View20 seems like a great phone. The bad news is that it's not clear it will come in a version that will work remotely well on US networks.
The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact is a phone for those averse to today's mega-slabs. It's a diminutive dynamo that packs a big punch.
Moto's new g-series phones bring up-to-date features, upgraded specs, and clean Google software to three models ranging from $200 to $300. This year's series moves to a notched-screen design, steps up to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 processor, and supports USB-C across the board.
HTC's 2018 flagship is the U12+, a large Android slab with a big screen, front and rear dual cameras, see-through glass, and squeezable actions. The phone offers top specs in a modern piece of hardware that's attractive, powerful, and sadly flawed in some respects.

Like all phones with exposed keypads and/or touch surfaces, it has a lock/unlock feature.
